Rebel Civil Defense Workers Protest Salary Delay

Employees with the Civil Defense Units in rebel-held Aleppo city carried out a sit-in on Sunday, protesting a salary delay by the opposition Interim Government.

Civil Defense ‘soldiers’, mostly university students and human rights advocates, have played a brave role in rescuing hundreds of people of Syria's commercial capital as barrel bombs reduced entire buildings to ruins.

“Opposition officials have used devious statements that glorify Civil Defense efforts but when it comes to the real responsibility we demand of them, we see nothing," one worker said.

Last June, the Interim Government promised to allocate salaries to the families of Civil Defense martyrs in Aleppo, an opposition senior official told Zaman al-Wasl.

The official said the government is in process of issuing a new law to guarantee the rights of workers in the civilian and military institutions and its affiliates.Until now, no law has been approved.
